Abutilon 'Victor Reiter' (Flowering Maple)

Flowering Maple 'Victor Reiter'


Very floriferous, Abutilon 'Victor Reiter' (Flowering Maple) is an upright, evergreen shrub or small tree bearing a profusion of huge, outward facing, soft tangerine, bell-shaped flowers, up to 3 in. across (7 cm). Resembling miniature pumpkins in buds, they open to form hibiscus-like flowers and dangle like porcelain earrings from the gracefully arching branches. Blooming for months from spring to fall, they attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The pretty blossoms stand out nicely against the lush foliage of shiny, maple-like, dark green leaves. A desirable Abutilon that is perfect against a sheltered wall or as a container specimen.

  • Grows up to 6 ft. tall (180 cm) and 4 ft. wide (120 cm).
  • A full sun to part shade lover, this plant is best grown in evenly moist, rich, well-drained soils. Water freely in the growing season and sparingly in winter. Provide a sheltered location if grown outdoors. Appreciates afternoon shade in hottest climates.
  • Perfect addition to Mediterranean gardens, or containers.
  • Cut back if needed or pinch the branch tips to make the plant bushier and control its size.
  • Propagate by softwood cuttings in spring or semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
  • Native to Brazil
